White House sets up Twitter account to promote Iran deal
Jul. 21, 2015
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House has created a new Twitter account to promote the international agreement to rein in Iran's nuclear program.
@TheIranDeal urges people to tweet their questions and promises to "set the record straight."
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said Tuesday the account also would serve as a forum for those who were involved in negotiating the agreement.
The White House also set up an online resource page at Whitehouse.gov/irandeal offering facts, graphics and videos.
Congress has 60 days to review the agreement, which has attracted heavy opposition from Republican legislators.
